MLB The Show 22 has arrived and comes with all the updated rosters for the upcoming Major League Baseball season. Let’s take a look at the best pitchers in MLB The Show 22.
MLB The Show is back, and it’s beautiful. The annual baseball sim has arrived just before the kick-off of the 2022 MLB season.
This year there are countless aces to choose from. The Show even celebrates one of them, Shohei Ohtani, as the cover athlete who is both pitcher and batter.
For those looking for the cream of the crop in pitching, let’s break down the best pitchers in The Show.
Best Pitchers in MLB The Show 22
Below are the top ten pitchers in MLB The Show 22. This year, the top two pitchers in The Show happen to be playing for the same club after a thrilling low season that saw tons of top players switch teams.
10. Walker Buehler, Los Angeles Dodgers, 92 ALGO
The heir to the throne of the Dodgers, once Clayton Kershaw finally hangs him, he has already won a World Series and, at just 27 years old, is one of the most dominant pitchers in MLB.
9. Zack Wheeler, Philadelphia Phillies, 92 ALGO
The former New York Met terrorizes opponents for the Phillies, posting solid seasons in a row for the club. On this year’s The Show, he gets a speed rating of 99.
8. Shane Bieber, Cleveland Guardians, 92 ALGO
The newly appointed Guardians are looking forward to a season of recovery and their ace Shane Bieber will be a big part of it.
7. Gerrit Cole, New York Yankees, 92 ALGO
The Yankees haven’t been to a World Series since 2009 and handing Gerrit Cole a huge contract was a big step in their plan to return. Although it hasn’t worked yet, it’s still as good as ever.
6. Chris Sale, Boston Red Sox, 93 ALG
Sale is one of the deadliest pitchers of the past decade, but injuries have kept him off the field in recent years. Hopefully he will be healthy enough for Red Sox fans to play in 2022 because if he does he will be a beast on the mound.
5. Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers, 93 ALGO
Kershaw has been a top ten pitcher for over a decade, an absolute stud looking to complement his surefire Hall of Fame legacy with a new World Series ring in 2022. While his stats faltered slightly in 2021, he is still in excellent shape .
4. Corbin Burnes, Milwaukee Brewers, 94 ALGA
Burnes headlines Milwaukee’s absolutely insane bullpen as one of the best pitchers in the league, and after Cy Young’s win, he has a chance to repeat.
3. Shohei Ohtani, Los Angeles Angels, 95 ALGO
Ohtani is arguably the most extraordinary player in baseball history. No one has ever had a season like him, posting All-Star-caliber numbers as both a pitcher and a batter. He’s the cover athlete this year for a reason, and at just 27 years old, he should have many more years in the tank.
2. Max Scherzer, New York Mets, 97 ALG
The baseball world was stunned when the Mets’ new owner, Steven Cohen, dropped an ungodly amount to bring in ace Max Scherzer. Pairing him with the next man on this list could make for a legendary season.
1. Jacob deGrom, New York Mets, 99 ALG
deGrom is just out of this planet. Despite throwing only 15 games in 2021, he won the Cy Young and racked up an incredible 1.08 ERA. He is the only 99 overall pitcher in the game, and for good reason.
